Roger Hickman's Restaurant

79 Upper St Giles Street, NORWICH, NR2 1AB

3 rosettes

Embedded in its little cul-de-sac in the St Giles quarter, a short hop from the cathedral, Roger Hickman's welcoming venue is done in clean, simple but elegant style. The floor is bare, but the tables are dressed in two layers, and there are a few small pictures on the plain white walls. Staff are a real asset, being attentive and discreet, announcing the composition of each dish as it turns up, and forthcoming with recommendations if needed. Hickman's small team produces refined modern Anglo-French cooking with the emphasis on intensity of flavour and seasoning, opening a menu with roe deer tartare spiked with fennel and capers, or a classic pairing of scallops with ham hock, black pudding and apple purée, garnished with puffed pork skin. Main items are timed with sensitivity and combined with flair, as when pinkly seared charred rib-eye arrives with Parmentier potatoes, puréed carrot and ceps in a meaty jus, or when delicately poached humble lemon sole is teamed grandly with lobster, as well as peas and crushed Jersey Royals. Desserts are full of contrasting textures: chocolate mousse and hazelnut sponge come with clementine segments and sorbet, chocolate crunch and a swipe of creamy praline.
